Chapter 1. Kill the Empress
Sponsored by Vina 💖 (5/5)
“….what? There’s a ‘gap’ in the square?”
Theo’s face dyed black as she made her way around the festival site to thank the captain for his urgent report.
“Why on earth? No, no. This is not the time to think about it. Take all the guards and knights with you! God!”
Theo couldn’t resist the harsh swear and ran with her weapon at once.
What do you mean, a gap in the middle of the capital!
This has never happened in Amor’s history.
And to top it all off, they were in the middle of a festival, where it was crowded with civilians.
Theo gritted her teeth.
Having a “gap” was like a disaster, but it could still lead to a national conflict if all the foreign guests were killed.
The Amor nobles were also out in the field of the festival, as they were supposed to be the Theban, was to turn the country upside down.
“‘Go and fetch Ronasso and Tamon at once! Hurry up!”
The captain of the guard reported that there were more than thirty monsters alone that had fallen from the gap.
There were dozens of ordinary soldiers had to hang on to deal with one single monster.
A captain-level person or a general was better.
If two or three of them fight together, they could at least handle one.
‘Ronasso and Tamon would be the best, but they arrive, the situation may already be over.’
Theo gritted her teeth and ran to the square.
It was still a good situation if the monsters were all crowded in one place.
With her understanding, she could somehow manage to defuse the situation with minimal sacrifice.
However, if they were already spreading, the situation would be serious.
‘At that time, we have to catch each and every one of them.’
‘Oh, please, stay where you are, you monsters!’
When Theo and her soldiers hurriedly turned the narrow corner towards the square.
Familiar faces darted in front of her. Theo’s eyes widened in surprise.
“What the hell, why are you guys here?”
They were the men who had been ordered to watch Tamon and bring Tamon’s slave to her, even if they had to kidnap the target.
Theo’s eyes began to take on a different look.
“So that’s it! Tamon is already there!”
A sigh of relief flooded through her now that Tamon and his troops were dealing with the monsters.
“Oh, Tamon! You’re my strong sword!”
When Theo moved with the momentum of jumping into the square, the knights standing in front of her blocked her.
“Your Majesty, Tamon is not the only one there.”
“Then? Is Ronasso there too?”
“No, not Ronasso. He’s with that silver-haired slave.”
“But why are you blocking me?”
The captain of the watchers bit his lip then opened his mouth.
“It’s a bit strange. Please see it for yourself.”
It’s not the time to be that relaxed.………
Theo stood and looked at what they had given her with a suspicious look on her face.
Immediately her expression changed.
Roselyn gritted her teeth and grabbed her head.
“Think, Roselyn, think….. There is a way!”
Then, unexpectedly, a voice rang out as if it had been waiting for the moment.
“Blessings will be with you, but don’t let go of your weapon.”
Weapon …………….That’s right.
Roselyn looked down at her bow, which had been in dire need of it.
Bow, arrows, and monsters in a circle of multiples….
Titus was afraid of fire.
Titus was the only one she could deal with without using silver deer or demeter!
If there was fire.
Engulfed in flames, Titus became increasingly violent. Enemies and allies alike in the vicinity spread their sword-sharp wings and the surrounding area became scorched earth.
Until every body was burnt to a crisp.
Roselyn quickly broke the lanterns around her and started a fire.
Then she quickly tore up the cloth and threw it in, strengthening the flames.
However, this was far from enough. Roselyn gathered the arrows scattered around her.
She cracked open the other lights and applied the oil that had accumulated in them to the tips of the arrowheads and immediately set them on fire.
The tips of the arrows that had absorbed the oil burned sharply. This arrow, popularized for prank-like event, had the good fortune to be an inexpensive wooden arrow. Roselyn didn’t hesitate to pull the string. The flaming arrowhead hung narrowly at the end of the arrow pole.
—Aim and pull!
The arrow that was stuck right in the middle brought fire to the entire sighting platform in no time.
After that, her body moved even further.
In a matter of seconds, she hit all of the 20-something sighting strips with an arrow that was on fire.
Unfortunately, the sighting strips were scattered all over the place, but the flames covering the area were enough to startle Titus.
Killrrrrr! Ki, kkk! Kie! Kie! Kieu! Kiew!
Titus moved faster and faster, and they flapped their wings violently at each other.
Some of the Titus’ wings began to open, but this was not enough.
“I have to send the flames to that center where the monster fell.”
Roselyn gathered up the rest of the arrows. But alas, there were no more than a few arrows left.
Even if she lit the arrows on fire and shot them, they were bound to be unsuccessful if they fell to the ground.
“There has to be enough in there to set the flames alight.’
Roselyn’s eyes caught sight of a seating tent that was a mess from people fleeing.
She had to set that place on fire. Once she did, she rummaged through the tents.
Meanwhile, some monsters rushed at her.
Just before the Jagma’s claws slashed at her head.
A clear light quickly wrapped around her body, repelling the Jagma’s claws.
‘Chain of Guardian!’
(*it’s the necklace Arsene gave it back to her. It has the power of protection)
While the startled Roselyn was relieved, Tamon rushed in front of her and grabbed the Jagma’s claws with his bare hands as it pounced again.
“I’m glad we found the Iron Child. Otherwise, the chain wouldn’t have protected your head today.” (Tamon)
Tamon slashed Jagma’s arms with a tremendous force as it savagely attacked him.
Shadow, who had teamed up with him to deal with the monsters, was still struggling alone, surrounded by Titus.
“I don’t know what you’re going to do, but I’m waiting for you for you in a hurry.” (Tamon)
Roselyn gritted her teeth and nodded. She ripped the fabric from her skirt and wrapped it around the arrow, anointing it with oil.
Then the fire pulled at the string of the arrows she had lit.
The fire at the tip of the arrow was much bigger than before because the cloth was wrapped around it. As a result, the fingertips that held the end of the bow touched the flames.
Her skin was being scorched.
Even with the horrible pain of her fingertips getting burn, Roselyn gritted her teeth and pulled the bow and shot the arrow.
The sound of the arrow flying was a little different because of the fire, but the arrow hit where she wanted it to.
It was right in the middle, on the back of Titus, who was shaking its wings.
Titus, with its back on fire, spread its wings and attacked the area, and Roselyn didn’t stop, she shot two in quick succession.
Titus and the others, their backs on fire from Roselyn’s arrows, ran around the square, swinging their blade-like wings.
Roselyn turned around quickly at a sudden groan.
A long scar appeared on Tamon’s chest as Zagma and Titus unleashed a series of attacks.
“Don’t worry about me, just finish everything you’re trying to do!”
Hesitantly, Roselyn moved the fire to the tent she had gathered. The idea was to fill the last opening in the round siege camp with flames.
“Tamon! Get out of the way!”
At her shout, Tamon immediately tore off the side of the Jagma he was holding with his hands.
Kukuku! Kukuku! Arhhhhhhgh!
With a deafening scream, the Jagma fell to the floor.
Its heart was intact so it didn’t die.
It was that monster that could survive for ten days with only the heart intact and the body torn off.
Meanwhile, Tamon came running to Roselyn, grabbed her and ran outside.
Shadow also quickly escape, but when he passed by the monsters, he was surrounded by them.
The key was whether he could hold out until the Imperial Knights arrived.
“There is not enough fire. If there are more arrows…!”
“We’ll take care of the rest.” (Theo)
As if they had been waiting, a cool voice struck them.
Roselyn turned around, still in Tamon’s arms.
Likewise, Tamon was already looking back at the voice that had spoken to them.
“You are here, Your Majesty.”
Tamon raised his lips in a smile as if he was not surprised and showed insincere courtesy.
Theo, who was staring at Tamon, sighed and raised her hand.
“We can talk after we’re done with this place. Tamon, you and…..the supposedly dead Empress of Tanatos.”
As soon as Theo’s words were over, a faint light flashed from her hands and the surroundings began to be filled with wind.
A moderate gust of wind raised the flames of the square, and the strange whirlwind controlled the wind so that the flames that grew in size as a tornado could not escape from the square.
In the meantime, a dry thunderbolt struck.
The very power that the Amor monarch, which Roselyn had only heard of it, was displayed in front of her eyes.
Theo had the ability to control the weather.
